Description

these could be added into autogen.sh
because aclocal is not checking those dirs by default ( TutorialInstallation )


if test x$ACLOCAL_FLAGS = x; then
  if test `uname` = "NetBSD"; then
    ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /usr/pkg/share/aclocal" 
  elif test `uname` = "FreeBSD"; then
    ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /usr/local/share/aclocal" 
  fi  
fi

Is this actually a problem on NetBSD or FreeBSD for all users of NetBSD or FreeBSD who attempt to compile lighttpd?

End-users attempting to compile lighttpd from source who run into missing m4 macros are more likely to need to install various development packages provided by their OS distributor.

Those that install autotools in non-default locations should probably do this themselves.
